With the completion of the poll process in 38 seats in phase, elections for the second phase on Mar 5 will be held. Election officials said EVMs were kept in the Strong Rooms and shall be guarded by a three-tier security system. Security forces have been keeping a strict vigil round the clock at Strong rooms.

The movement of EVMs was tracked with the help of the e-Traccar App which was embedded in the mobile phones of Polling personnel and Sector Officers. Besides, the e- Atlas app was used by polling teams which enabled polling personnel to report any sort of EVM malfunctioning or any untoward incident happening in the polling station.

This enabled the Returning Officer to take immediate corrective actions. The voting at the majority of the polling stations was monitored through the webcasting at the control rooms.

CEO Rajesh Agrawal said that some poll-related minor incidents were reported in a few polling stations and appropriate action on the same were taken. In addition, a total of 32 observers deputed by the Election Commission of India for the first phase of polls, including the Special Observers, were monitoring the poll throughout the day, witnessing polling at hundreds of polling stations.

Agrawal said that in the morning during the mock poll 6 ballot units, 13 control units and 14 VVPAT machines were replaced, while 11 ballot units, 10 control units and 20 VVPATs were successfully replaced during the conduct of the poll.
